Creative Ireland: The Visual Arts is a critically curated volume of 100 leading Irish artists accompanied by texts which contextualise the societal, economic, and academic background in which they have created their careers. Each individual artist is accompanied by a synopsis of their career, and the curators’ reasoning in the selection of specific works that are shown in the book. Their story is unique as they swing between the economic good times, and now continue to create within a world of new social and economic realities. Far from being a dry volume, Creative Ireland: The Visual Arts shows a vibrancy and is permeated with an on-going air of hope for the future of contemporary visual arts.
